15 Simple, Beautiful, and Insightful Quotes from the Beloved Robin Williams

quotes from Robin Williams
On August 11th 2014, the world lost one of it’s greatest talents. I wish there were better words for me to express how I really feel about Robin’s exit from this world, but I think his Daughter Zelda Williams said it best with this quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupery:
“You — you alone will have the stars as no one else has them. … In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night. … You — only you — will have stars that can laugh,”

Robin, we love you. We miss you, and we will always try to keep looking up.

“For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side. Maybe it comes from anger, because I’m outraged by cruel absurdities, the hypocrisy that exists everywhere, even within yourself, where it’s hardest to see.”

In honor of the comic genius that was Robin Williams, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite quotes from the man the brightened so many hearts.
